1998 Lotus Elan SE Turbo blue convertible 1600 cc. This vehicle has never been used since it was garaged in 2012. At that time, it was lifted onto its body mounts ready for refurbishment. Since then many new parts have been fitted or purchased and the running gear cleaned and overhauled. Over £2,772 has been spent on parts including
Running gear;
New bushes
New ball Joints
Reconditioned brake callipers front and rear
New s/s braded brake lines
New brake pads front and rear
New wheel bearings front and rear
In addition
S/S exhaust fitted
New Clutch fitted
New Upgraded gear shift cables fitted
Parts not yet fitted
New coolant hoses,
Two complete engine gasket sets
Refurbished radiator with new core.
New radiator cooling fans
Current position
The vehicle has been in its jacking points while in the garage, the cooling system had shown signs of leaking which is why new coolant hoses were purchased. Some of the coolant fittings need a little attention to get them back to A1 condition and consideration needs to be given to checking the head gasket. Although when it was driven to the garage there were no signs of a problem.
The seats need recovering and when purchased the headlights would not flick up.
The wheels can be fitted with a little work and the vehicle made ready put on a trailer. It is not ready to be towed as the suspension alignment has not yet been set up.

Selling due to change of circumstances and I now need the garage space.
